Fun Gifts for Toddlers at Christmas

Fun Holiday Gifts for ToddlersIf your child is like mine, she has plenty of toys. My daughter, Johanna, has a dollhouse, kitchen, play purse, jewelry, etc. Her favorite toys right now are her “Frozen” figurines. Kids are so much fun to shop for at the holidays. Here are some of my favorite fun gifts to give.

1. Toys for Imaginative Play

Toys that toddlers can use their imaginations with are the best.  If you have a play kitchen in your house, why not invest in some more fun items to go with it like play food. Take play food to another level and check out these cute Melissa and Doug play foods that your child can actually cut. Let your child pretend they have their own indoor garden and purchase these play gardening tools.  My daughter loves her baby dolls. For awhile, they went everywhere with us, along with their stroller. Get your little one a baby doll and also a baby carrier for their doll. They can be just like mommy! Toys that toddlers can for imaginative play will provide hours of fun and entertainment for you and your little ones.

2. Gifts You Make

The most heartfelt holiday gifts are the ones we spend time creating for our children. Take the time this year and create some fun gifts. If you are crafty and can sew, make your toddler their very own sleeping bag. If your little one likes to read, create your very own family board book.  Use words like “mom” and “dad” and put your own photos in the book. How fun! Use cardboard boxes to create fun, new toys. Try making a ice cream shop for your toddler out of a box you have and some other craft supplies. It doesn’t get much more creative than that! Your toddler will see the love behind any gift you take the time to make them.

3. Gifts Your Toddler is Into Now

I can’t help it. I am a sucker for the trendy holiday gifts of the season. My daughter is all about the movie “Frozen,” so this year, we had to go find Sno Glo Elsa before she sold out.  Another hot item to have is a cute little table with chairs for your little one. I am planning on finding one of these on sale this Black Friday. My daughter also loves puzzles right now, so I plan on buying her a few more. Whatever your child is really into right now, go ahead and get them something related to that. I’m not saying buy every “Frozen” toy you see, but it’s okay to get a gift or two that will create a priceless response.

The great thing about toddlers is that they are excited by the smallest things. Any holiday gift you give will create awe and wonder that is sure to last longer than the holiday season.
